Meet the Boobie Bears raising awareness of Breast Cancer

Keep a look out for some very special bears - The Boobie Bears.

These special bears carry a very important message - to check your breasts - along with the signs and symptoms to look out for which may indicate breast cancer.

And they've been popping up all over the place. Las Vegas...Alcatraz...they've even been to see Barry Manilow!

in fact more than 3,500 'Boobie Bears' with a breast cancer message have travelled the world far and wide after being handed out by campaigner Scarlet Whiteley, from Winterton in North Lincolnshire.

Scarlet was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2008, wants the bears to encourage people to check their breasts for changes because early detection saves lives.

Ms Whiteley, who has been given the all clear from the disease, said: "If I've saved one person, it'll be worth it.

The idea is that you take a photo with the bear you find and post it on the Boobie Bears Facebook page and/or Instagram, then send them off on a new adventure.

Attached are all the details and things you need to be aware of about breast cancer.

Having survived breast cancer twice, I think it’s an absolutely amazing idea. It’s just for fun…But could save a life.

I was given two of the Boobie Bears, Cake and Carver, who will now be off on their travels.

Keep a look out for them. Let’s see how far they can go!

Love Tx
